Hospitals need to catch-up on tech to prevent medication errors

Advancements in medicine often mean new and better opportunities for patients in Pennsylvania. Nonetheless, furthering the technology and procedures used in medical care does present some problems. While future medical professionals may be prepared and ready to use these advancements, current medical professionals may have to play major catch-up if such advancements are going to be utilized. If medical facilities are not properly adapted for changes in medical treatments and procedures, this could mean medical errors and injured patients.

Helping victims take action after suffering a brain injury

Much like no one ever expects to be involved in a serious accident, individuals in Pennsylvania and elsewhere never expect to suffer a serious brain trauma due to an accident. However, due to the negligence and recklessness of others, accident victims and their families could suffer tremendously. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) could impact a victim and his or her loved ones for an extended period of time or even for the rest of their lives.

The occurrence of spinal cord birth injuries

While many expecting parents in Pennsylvania plan and prepare for the birthing process of their baby, many unexpected events and complications could occur during the labor and delivery process. Although many of the unexpected events are related to the natural complications with the birth of a newborn, an infant could suffer serious birth injuries due to the negligence of a physician or other medical professionals aiding in the birthing process.

Distracted driving takes a deadly toll during summer months

Driving on Pennsylvania’s roads during winter months is often no easy feat. Given the region’s average snowfall and icy precipitation, driving adjustments are often required to adjust to accommodate unfavorable road conditions. Not surprisingly, many drivers in the region greet the summer months with a sigh of relief.

Speeding is a culprit in fatal pedestrian injuries

The temptation to speed when driving can be justified with many excuses. A driver may have been running late, or perhaps simply wanted to make the driving experience more interesting or exciting. Many drivers might disagree that speeding is per se negligent, especially when road or traffic conditions are good.

No informed consent might give rise to medical malpractice

A patient has a right to know if there is an element of risk inherent to a medical procedure or treatment. Without that knowledge, a patient can hardly be deemed to have made an informed consent. Yet a recent article questions whether medical device innovations truly put a patient’s best interests in the forefront.

Could sending a text to a driver result in a wrongful death suit?

In Pennsylvania, state law makes texting while driving a primary offense. However, a local lawsuit brought by the estate of a deceased motorcyclist has prompted discussion of whether additional measures need to be taken to discourage this type of negligent driving behavior.
